Difference between "Send an email notification (V3)" and "Send an email (V2)"







I am researching the differences between the 

"Send an email notification (V3)" Action which comes with the Mail Connection

and the

"Send an email (V2)" Action which comes with the Office 365 Outlook Connection.


I am fully aware that you need to have a license and online mailbox in order to use the Office 365 Outlook connection. That being said, If a user has the necessary elements to use either action, why might you choose one over the other?


Thank you for your assistance

Hi @fsadiq , Our organization primarily uses the v2 variety and tries to avoid the extra attachments setup when we can.  The users are understanding of the "from" PowerApps and this is better overall than from "Flow Owner" as that really confuses people.


The solution marked above by @ScottShearer does appear to give more information.  However, my organization is not in favor of the shared mailbox setup so v2 typically works best for us.

Dear Rob, where did you learn about the "100 emails every 24 hours" and "900 emails every 60 seconds" limitations? Can you share a link to the source with me, please?
